Michael Landes is extending his relationship with Fox Broadcasting Co. and 20th Century Fox Television.

Landes, who co-starred on David E. Kelley's dramedy The Wedding Bells for Fox and 20th TV, has signed a talent deal with the network and the studio.

Under the pact, 20th TV and Fox will develop a project for him targeted for the 2008-09 season.

"Michael is a great-looking leading man who is equally adept at comedy and drama," Fox executive vp casting Marcia Shulman said. "It was a no-brainer."

Landes, whose series credits include ABC's Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, UPN's Special Unit 2 and BBC's Love Soup, played wedding photographer David Conlon on Bells this past spring.

"He's just a charming, incredibly talented guy who I know is going to be a huge television star," 20th TV senior vp casting Sharon Klein said. "It's just a matter of time and finding him the right project."

Landes recently completed the Yari Film Group feature Addicted, starring Sarah Michelle Gellar. He will next be seen in the Disney comedy College Road Trip.

Landes, whose theater credits include the male lead in the London West End production of When Harry Met Sally, is repped by Endeavor and attorneys Jason Sloane and Harris Hartman.
